Conclusion: Repeated colonoscopies can be perceived as both an assurance of life and a reminder of a lifelong illness. Healthcare professionals need to provide support in terms of awareness of patients' vulnerability, despite extensive experience of the colonoscopy procedure. For example, person-centred care and continuity in care are potential interventions based on the results of this study. Another important aspect of care is to minimise interference in everyday life to prevent feelings of loss of the healthy self, for example by self-administrated outpatient booking systems.Summarize the established knowledge on this s...
THE EFFECT OF DAILY PHYSICAL ACTIVITY ON THE ACTIVITY OF INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASES IN THERAPY-FREE PATIENTS. Acta Clin Croat. 2019 Jun;58(2):202-212 Authors: Holik D, Včev A, Milostić-Srb A, Salinger Ž, Ivanišević Z, Včev I, Miškulin M Abstract It has been suggested that various environmental factors play a very important role in the etiology of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) and that they have a significant effect on the course of these diseases. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of daily physical activity on the activity of IBDs in therapy-free patients. Thi...

Conclusions: Colorectal stricture had the highest risk for malignant transformation. Earlier initiation of colonoscopic surveillance in UC patients with risk factors for stricture should be considered to prevent stricture formation and further malignant transformation.

(INSERM (Institut national de la sant é et de la recherche m é dicale)) In animals, a vaccine modifying the composition and function of the gut microbiota provides protection against the onset of chronic inflammatory bowel diseases and certain metabolic disorders, such as diabetes and obesity. This research was conducted by the team of Beno î t Chassaing, Inserm researcher at Institut Cochin (Inserm/CNRS/Universit é de Paris), whose initial findings have been published in Nature Communications.
(Drexel University) An algorithm akin to the annoyingly helpful one that attempts to auto-complete text messages and emails is now being harnessed for a better cause. A group of Drexel University researchers are using its pattern-recognition ability to identify microbial communities in the body by sifting through volumes of genetic code. Their method could speed the development of medical treatments for microbiota-linked ailments like Crohn's disease.
Wernicke`s encephalopathy is associated mainly with malnourishment in alcohol-dependent patients but can be caused also by cancer, Crohn's disease, gastrointestinal surgery or prolonged parenteral nutrition (PN) without adequate supplementation of vitamins. The disorder, with a significant mortality rate of up to 20%, is often associated with the underlying disease and intensifies after administration of non-supplemented PN. Thus, it seems justified to add thiamine to PN admixtures prepared for parenterally fed patients.
